Graphic Mania!!

Ok, the title is much cooler than what this is going to be about. Anyway..... I decided today that it was high time that I started reading more graphic novels. Seeing that the four I have are all from the same author (Persepolis 1 & 2 - is coming out in a movie, I'm so excited) As I was at the City Library today tutoring a family friend through her first research paper, I thought that it would be a good time to check out a small collection of them.

As I felt a little silly asking friends about where I should start, I got a few that have been made into movies to start out with: V for Vendetta, 28 Days Later, Sin City....and I was a bit bummed that I couldn't find 30 Days of Night, even though the library said that they had it. I was hoping to find out if there was another reason that the vampires were such messy eaters.

So I got those and then I grabbed some random ones off the shelf...a couple spy ones, one about a bear and a psycho cat, and I read one about a robot and monkey while I was there. I stayed away from the Anime though.

If anyone has some recommendations, let me know.

Also, have you noticed? Have you noticed?! I am feeling better. I have been trying to get back into those things that I really enjoy: reading, writing, and just being passionate about those other things in life that I used to be. In my quest for it to be all about me (did I write about that? can't remember, I'll have to check), I have been little bit by little bit rediscovering me.

The Sandman series is the biggest recommend. But Fables is also great. Watchman is one of the best. Y the Last Man and Ex Machina are also highly recommended. For horror, the zombie series The Walking Dead is my favorite.
